There are two reasons for starting this blog.
Firstly, the Blogger tool will make it easier to make quick changes to this site. Cutting the time spent on maintenance will free up more time for content creation. Which, at the end of the day, is the whole point of having a website.
Secondly, a blog is an ideal 'dustbin' for all the ideas and postings that don't have a more natural home to go to on this site. This includes short opinion pieces and 'what's new'. It will also enable me to document work in progress on bigger projects.
Although the comments section can be the most dynamic part of a blog, I'm not accepting them at the moment. It's too open to abuse and spamming and I don't want the burden of checking everything, otherwise the first reason for creating a blog will have been defeated. I hope to enable comments at some stage in future.
